    Shrinking Boonie Hat

    Everyday I whenever I'm walking around outside I wear a boonie hat.. lately I've been wearing R&B boonies...I get 7.5 and they initially are lose enough to fit four fingers under the sweat band while wearing it. After a few minutes in the sun it feels snug on my head. Anyone else have this issue?

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    I got a cool hat in the mail today. Scippis Conway. I ordered it from Germany. It's like a cross between a Tilley T3 and the Outback Riverguide hat. That's right, I'm suggesting that in a parallel dimension they did it, and this hat is the result

    Barmah Hats

    Kinda cool weather, with some style, I'd go with the Austrian Outback Company Riverguide. To be fair, leather is okay for kinda cool weather. I prefer the cloth safari/boonie look, so nothing mesh, but that's me. I few packable safaris I have and like, Tilley t3, Filson summer packer...

    Barmah Hats

    Yeah the Akubras outbacks are nice, mostly not packable. Some people love the leather outback hats. There's several brands. Tilley's are quite popular. I think the mesh Breezer feature looks a bit silly. Really depends on your intended use, rainy, cold weather, or hot and summer? Need it to be...

    Barmah Hats

    The quality and look is good. That said as an adventure hat collector, leather isn't for me. The sizing is way off, about two sizes too small. In other words, I normally wear an L, but had to get XL. I don't care for these hats. They're only comfortable in the 60-70s F. In the sun the brim...

    Outback Trading Company Grizzly Opinions?

    Well I got the get a new hat itch again. I'm thinking of the Outback Trading Company Grizzly or RiverGuide. I think I like the Grizzly better, but it has a wire brim. The RiverGuide does not, and is also packable. Years ago I had a wire brim Stetson wool felt and a Minnetonka leather wire brim...

    Anyone Have A Filson Tin Cloth?

    Now that I've worn this hat a while it's grown on me. Pretty good for rainy cold weather. Too bad they don't make a version of this without oil cloth.

    Anyone Have A Filson Tin Cloth?

    I got the Filson finally. DHL crammed it in the mail box and creased the brim a bit. So I ordered XL. My head measures something like 58.6 cm. It's way too small. It fits but tightly. Also the brim is way to small to be at hat for rugged weather and sun. Though the quality of the materials is on...

    Anyone Have A Filson Tin Cloth?

    Here it rains really hard in the winter. This video shows that the akubras hold up to water, but do lose their shape and need to be reblocked. I don't want to do that to mine. Hence why I got the filson, but the brim looks way too small. I mean end up getting an outback trading company oilskin...

    Anyone Have A Filson Tin Cloth?

    Yeah the whole pacific northwest lumberjack/gold rush thing they got going on is pretty cool piece of Americana, and part of why I wanted this hat. Why did you sell Filson in college? I never heard of them till I got into outdoor hats. Maybe cuz they're from the northwest? I come from Buffalo...

    Anyone Have A Filson Tin Cloth?

    So I've got a picture from the shipping service I use. Seems to me there's a little discrepancy in how these hats look advertised, and the reality. In the advertising they seem to have a the stone wash of the Tilley T3 wanderers. In reality they look like someone took and old army tarp and...
